That's really cool. That's certainly the oldest piece of music I've ever heard. Only one question: where's the intense climax?

Semper Fidelis by the United States Marine Corps Band.

I marched to this song every Wednesday afternoon for 4 years at Annapolis.

It never rained on Wednesdays............

Yeah! It's amazingly clear sounding, considering how old it is. Just goes to show the Dead's influences are deep and wide. Why no climax? In those days, the songs couldn't go over 3 and a half minutes. Maybe it was different live, where the Jug Stompers could 'Jam'? ;-)
